PDA

View Full Version : [Comment] It's my fault...


Papenbrook

Throughout my time on the Technodrome Forums, I did some pretty messed up activities.I created unneeded threads, unnecessary posts, and unnerving replies- all of which started the drama. I also caused a handful of people to leave this place (BubblyShell, pennydreadful, Leo656). It was all my fault.

I was going through a difficult time in my life. I had social anxiety, my family moved a lot, and my dad went to jail.

But still, that is no excuse.

I would like to apologize to everyone on these forums.

I know that I will mature and become a wise individual. However, I can't keep participating in problems that will, eventually, hurt someone. I don't think my conscience can take it. So, I am leaving the forums. For good.

I will leave you all with this: don't become like me. Don't turn into a irresponsible, unforgiving human being. Make the right choices in life. Try to support what you believe in. Be respectful towards everyone.

This is the end. Bye.

First of all, if you actually ran off Bubblyshell... GOD BLESS YOU. She was an unbearable turd.

Secondly, you had nothing to do with Leo's ragequit. He got upset that someone else didn't want to see a movie he was excited about... and it ended up being a boring clunker anyways.

Anyways... you're weird. Thanks for spicing those place up though. Farewell.

Ironically enough he did the same thing to me about TMNT 2.

Was she? I never really knew her that well, but she came off as a normal, nice person to me. Was she secretly a turd though?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure he lost his mind. Someone told me he was talking about getting this place shut down in someone's visitor messages lol. Maybe he'll show Zack Snyder all the mean things we said and he'll pull some strings.

Was she? I never really knew her that well, but she came off as a normal, nice person to me. Was she secretly a turd though?

Her posts were normally pretty innocuous and tame, but then she'd go on pretty bigoted and close minded rants, and randomly gripe about how her mom had to drive her everywhere lol

Bubbly's views on certain subjects and attitude on specific threads in the DU caused her to leave. That, and I think her personal life soon began to influence some of her posts. Personally, I think she's cool but I do feel her life and a few arguments caused her to quit and did get, well out of control. Hope she's alright though. :ohwell:

I never found it to be that much of a secret, honestly.
Though many of our disagreements came else-forum with at-the-time far less stringent rules regarding the discussion of politics.

So long, Papenbrook. We never really chatted, so... yeah... hope things get better on your end :)

I liked Leo, but seriously... his blind devotion to the Snyderverse reads like a comedy skit. That being said, hope he comes back around some day.

Man, after reading this and the Jakesully thread, anyone ever wonder what the other Dromers think of you? :lol:

Regardless of my post from earlier, you have nothing to do with Leo, her, or Penny leaving. It's of their personal choice to focus on themselves; as much as it'd be cool to see them again, I think it's best to leave them alone. Maybe we'll see them soon, but I respect their wishes and understand if they are uncomfortable, or angry.

Whatever's going down in your life, that I can't fix. I know quite a few will not care after all the "controversy", it is what it is. Either way, get any help you need and be safe if you're not returning. If you want to keep in touch with me for example, I got no problem as I've had a rocky school year that's finally getting better.

No matter what though, just seek out assistance, maybe a trainer if you are angry or something along those lines. Either way, take it easy. :) Best of luck to you.

So many people leaving the forums, don't worry, everyone, I'll be here forever.

I've been here for more than 12+ years since 2004, I'll probably be here for the next 12+ years too. So if you guys stick around you have me to look forward to for the next decade. I can't wait to educate the new young TMNT fans who are currently being born during the 4th or 5th TMNT cartoon about TMNT history in the 2020's.

Never had an issue with Bubbly, but I can see what some of you meant.

Was completely unaware that Leo left, and really can't say that I'll miss him. Never got why so many members were infatuated with him anyways...

Papenbrook, don't feel obligated to leave. Everyone can get a bit annoying on here, it happens. Hell, I went off one time at a ton of people in the After Dark group and I know there are quite a few people here who aren't a fan of me. You live and you learn. No need to post apologies, lol, it kind of makes you sound like Super Goku

Papen, while I do respect your decision to leave, I don't have anything new or different to say. It's not your fault that those people left, so don't take the blame. If you want to leave, whatever, it's your decision, I just don't think you should leave for something that wasn't your fault. If you are gone though, while I wasn't your biggest fan, I still wish you well.

That's disgusting. Wow, I'm really conflicted now. I've loved Rat Queens and the original artist (POS that he is), but the story has really become scattered and listless.

Are you going to keep reading? I feel like I should boycott... and honestly, at the moment, it'd be pretty easy to drop the series.

It's clear to me that the magic of the first couple of arcs was due to a collaboration between the two guys. I'm fine with shifting art styles, but the story just isn't there, and I'd rather not line the pockets of a guy who beats his wife.

So it's less a boycott and me just moving on from the book.

Yeah. It still astonishes me that story and characters would suffer simply from changing artists, but that's definitely been the case.

If there were any indication that the man had cleaned up his act and was doing right by his family (while also staying the hell away from them, cleaned up act or not), I'd give him a second chance. But it sounds like the booted artist and the wife are right: this was always the team's plan, hoping to sweep things quietly under the rug and pick back up later on.

Appalling. Oh well, I've still got Clean Room. Didja check that out yet? :tsmile:

Wasnt really a fan. As others have said, the guy could be incredibly stubborn. Also felt like he thought his opinions trumped everyones, just because he was himself. Confidence in your opinion is one thing, this was another

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the time together through all the years
Will take away these tears
It's okay now
Goodbye my friend

I've seen a lot things that make me crazy
And I guess I held on to you
We could've run away and left well maybe
But it wasn't time and we both knew

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the love you gave me through all the years
Will take away these tears
I'm okay now
Goodbye my friend

Life's so fragile and love's so pure
We can't hold on but we try
We watch how quickly it disappears
And we never know why

But I'm okay now
Goodbye my friend
You can go now

Don't tell me it's by chance

Oh, you're my brother

We're one big family
Oh, you're my brother

You feel I feel, you bleed I bleed, you cry and I cry
We sleep and dream
Sometimes we're sad, sometimes we're happy
You breathe I breathe
We love, walk, talk and we smile

There's no difference between us two
We're part of one family
No matter how far you are

Oh, you and me, me and you, we are one

Oh, you're my brother
